United Dental Laboratories, Inc. (UDL) has created this privacy statement in order to demonstrate our strong commitment to privacy.
We gather broad demographic information about you from your visit to www.UnitedDentalLabs.com, and all other domain names that we own and have pointed to the UDL web site. Among the types of demographic information we gather are: the domain name from which you access the Internet (such as "www.yahoo.com") the date and time you access our site, terms entered into our search engine and the Internet address of the web site from which you direct-linked to our site. This type of information is used to measure the number of visitors to the various sections of our site and to help us make our site more useful to visitors.
When inquiries are E-mailed to us, we store the question and the E-mail address information so that we can respond electronically. Unless otherwise required by statute, we do not identify publicly who sends questions or comments to our web site. We will not obtain information that will allow us to personally identify you when you visit our site, unless you chose to provide such information to us.
E-mail sent to UDL may be seen by a number of people who are responsible for answering questions. If the individual who answers the mail does not know the answer to your question, your query may be forwarded to another employee more experienced in that area. On occasion, we may conduct a study concerning the types of questions sent to us.
These studies involve coding the queries to see if there are recurring problems that users are having in finding information. The knowledge gained by these studies is used to improve our Web site in order to make it more responsive to the needs of our users. We do not forward your mail outside of UDL nor do we collect your name and e-mail address for any purpose other than to respond to your query. However, you should be aware that e-mail is not secure against interception. If your communication contains sensitive or personal information, you may want to send it by postal mail or another more secure means.
Our site's registration form requires users to give us contact information (for example: name and email address) and demographic information (For example: zip code, age, or income level). The contact information is used to contact the visitor when necessary. Demographic and profile data is also collected at our site. This information may be shared with distributors of our products. Financial information that is collected is used to bill the user for products and services.
While visiting our site, you may occasionally encounter a Web page that employs "cookies". A cookie is a small file that a Web site transfers to your computer's hard disk allowing our server to "remember" specific information about your session while you are connected.
Requests to send cookies from UDL web pages are not designed to collect information about you, but only about your browser "session." The cookie makes it easier for you to use the dynamic features of these Web pages. The cookie and the information about your session will be destroyed automatically shortly after you close your browser--it is not permanently stored on your computer. Unless a UDL web page specifically notifies you otherwise, we will not collect and maintain personal information about you.
